Yawanawa Rapé Ceremony
July 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Join us for a special evening of Rapé medicine and sacred Yawanawa prayers.
We invite you to join us on this very special evening for a sacred ceremonial gathering with Matsini Yawanawa, the Casique of Aldeia Mutum, alongside his wife, Manxivake, and his daughter, Kenemeni.
Matsini and his family came here all the way from the Brazilian Amazon to share the traditional healing powers of their culture. They will be sharing the healing of one of their most sacred and powerful medicines ~ Rapé ( pronounced hap-ey ).
Rapé is a mixture of Tobacco and the ash of Tsunu tree that is blown into the nostrils for energetic cleansing, connection with spirit, and to gain clarity and groundedness. It is considered their most powerful medicine for the potency and strength of its Spirit.
Taking Rapé is a form of sacred prayer. Please RSVP ahead of time by purchasing a ticket! We look forward to gathering and are so grateful for your presence and participation, as it directly supports Matsini’s whole family and village of Aldeia Mutum in the Brazilian Amazon.
